A ritual we have adopted is to express out loud what we're grateful for. It really sets up the remainder of the day for us.
We're well practiced in gratitude. We know that being truly grateful for what we have leads to more of what we need.
Being grateful is something I have practiced daily now for 43 years. It was as a 23 year old that I faced a life-threatening operation with a 1 in 5 survival rate. I became the 1 largely because my surgeon taught me gratitude. In preparing for the operation that saved my life I followed his instructions to stand in front of the mirror and say out loud "I have an attitude of gratitude." I have been carrying out this ritual every day since.
In the best and worst of times I have learned that being grateful and having "an attitude of gratitude" is the key to living a happy and contented life.
Having "an attitude of gratitude" is a foundation stone of heart-leadership.
